Study Tour to the parks and gardens of North Bohemia, Silesia & Saxony

Saturday 21 to Friday 27 September

We regret that this Study Tour is now FULLY BOOKED

Following on from our highly successful Study Tour to Bohemia and Moravia in the Czech Republic earlier this summer, Harriet Landseer will be leading a follow up expedition to the northern part of the country and crossing over the border into Poland and germany as well. The study trip to Eastern Bohemia, Silesia and Saxony, led by Harriet Landseer, will start and end in Prague, and cost £995 per person for those sharing a room, with a £225 single room supplement.  The price includes all accommodation, transport within the country, all breakfasts, lunches and most dinners, and entry to all sites but does not include transport to and from Prague.

Amongst those gardens visited within the Czech Republic will be two significant landscape parks of the 1780’s, Krasny Dvur and Veltrusy, with numerous important and interesting follies, the Arts & Crafts garden at Nove Mesto and Kuks, a later garden nearby from the 1930’s owned by the same family. Within Poland, Bukowiec and Mys?akowice, the summer home of Friedrich Wilhelm III, Mys?akowice, redesigned by Schinkel and Lennéand in Germany, Bad Muskau, laid out by Prince Pückler-Muskau after a visit to England in 1816 that led him to admire the work of Humphrey Repton, Seifersdorfer Tal, where the design was influenced by Herder, leads us into Dresden, with visits to gardens established by Augustus the Strong, Pillnitz and Großsedlitz.
